Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 10 March 2018

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 10 March 2018 – Lucky Dip!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have a poem for you to respond to. The poem is called “Fable” by Janos Pilinszky and it is one of my favourites. Though tragic at the end, the poem holds many layers and lessons to be learned.

Today I am asking you to either write about your response to this poem, eg. What is the lesson?


Write your own poem entitled “Fable” that teaches a lesson.

Without further ado, here is the poem…

Fable by Janos Pilinszky

Once upon a time
there was a lonely wolf
lonelier than the angels.

He happened to come to a village.
He fell in love with the first house he saw.

Already he loved its walls
the caresses of its brick layers.
But the window stopped him.

In the room sat people.
Apart from God nobody ever
found them so beauitful
as this child-like beast

So at night he went into the house.
He stopped in the middle of the room
and never moved from there anymore.

He stood all through the night, with wide eyes
and on into the morning when he was beaten to death.

Good luck with your ‘Lucky Dip Fable’ – I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Don’t forget to tag ‘Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’, ‘Saturday Mix’, and hashtag #LuckyDip.

As always, make sure you link your fabulous creation to the helpful Mister Linky.
